Chukwueze is riding the crest of a wave having enjoyed a terrific breakout season under Javier Calleja at the Estadio de la Ceramica.His performances since Calleja took the reins in January have seen the 20-year-old linked with a big-money move away from eastern Spain.Liverpool are said to be interested in snapping up Chukwueze as they attempt to add more firepower to their already star-studded attack.Barcelona and Bayern Munich have also been reported as potential destinations for the Nigeria international, who made his senior Super Eagles debut last November.Chukwueze has now discussed the speculation surrounding his future, with a clutch of clubs sure to be paying attention.”I am aware some clubs are interested in signing, but I am still a Villarreal player as nothing concrete has been done,” Chukwueze told SCORENigeria.”It’s great to be linked with so many big clubs, that shows that hard work pays.”I am not going to relent I will always give my best to ensure I remain top of my game.”Chukwueze made 36 appearances, of which 25 were starts, for Villarreal in all competitions across the course of the 2018/19 campaign.And he’s desperate to get as many minutes as possible should he quit the La Liga outfit – a message Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will take heed of.”I don’t want to rush to join any club, but if I were to leave, it must be the right club who are ready to give me playing time,” Chukwueze said.Chukwueze has been named in Nigeria’s provisional squad for this summer’s Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.And a host of scouts will be keeping tabs on him if he makes the cut for games against Burundi, Guinea and Madagascar.Liverpool could have up to three representatives of their own at the Africa Cup of Nations.Mohamed Salah is set to represent Egypt, while Naby Keita will feature for Guinea if he recovers from injury in time.Senegal are yet to announce their travelling party but Sadio Mane is expected to be called up.
